• Observe what the suspect looks like and develop a mental picture so that an accurate description can be given to the police.
• Don't chase or follow the suspect.  
• Protect the crime scene.  Leave everything as it is.  Don't try to clean up or touch any possible evidence.
• Write down a description of the suspect including sex, race, height, weight, build, eye and hair color, scars or tattoos, jewelry, approximate age, and clothing.  If possible, note in which direction the suspect fled.  Remember do not chase the suspect.
